RFID Asset Tracking


Tracking laundry and apparel - from small
businesses to large-scale laundry management

Essen RFID’s ACQUA™ tags provide enhanced read range compared to standard passive UHF tags for similar usage
- over 18 feet with fixed readers and 8 feet with hand held readers, under European ETSI standards.

Absolute reliability and accuracy, with superior read rates on apparel and laundry. Rugged breakage-resistant tag withstands friction between clothes and tags during machine wash. Designed to withstand repeated machine washing without read performance degradation. PP material with keyhole on one side for string tied wrap attachment.

Having an enhanced read range and reduced size, ACQUA™ tags combine the best of both worlds - tags that can be read at longer distances, but having a smaller footprint. This makes them ideal for:
- Laundry
- Apparel tracking
- Retail outlets
- Transit tracking
- Delivery tracking
